Boehlkea fredcochui
Cochu's Blue Tetra
breeding notes

BREEDING: Soft water is required for breeding this species. The female lays pre-fertilised eggs on the underside of leaves, so having broadleafed plants such as Anubias is an advantage. The leaf can simply be removed to allow the fry to be raised separately. Paramecium is best offered as a first food for the fry.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Give your fish a treat! Flaked fish foods are excellent nutritionally, but most fish really enjoy tucking into live, or frozen live foods. Insect larvae such as bloodworms can be collected in summertime from your water barrel, but it is also very worthwhile to attempt to culture Daphnia or white worms for a free food source absolutely relished by aquarium fish. Frozen bloodworm are almost as good and are widely available, though freeze dried live foods tend not to go down as well. See more on feeding fish
